COOKIE POLICY

 

Introduction

User trust is important to us, and therefore, at: www.noaharmon.com (hereinafter the “site”) we are concerned with protecting your privacy. An important aspect of this is providing you with as much information as possible on how we use your personal data, including how we use local data storage and similar technology..

What does local data storage, cookies and similar technology mean?

Local data storage involves storing different types of data locally on your device through your web browser. Locally stored data may, for example, contain user settings, information about how you navigate our websites, what web browser you use, what ads have been displayed, and similar behavior on websites with which we collaborate. Locally stored data can be used to personalize the content and functions in our services so that your visits are more comfortable and make more sense. A local data storage method is cookies. Cookies are small text files that are stored on your device (PC, mobile phone or tablet) that allow us to recognize your web browser. Cookies mainly contain information about your web browser and about any activity that has occurred on it. In addition to local data storage, we can use other similar technology, such as web beacons (or web beacons) / pixel tags (or pixel tags). This technology recognizes cookies and identifiers, and allows third parties to set cookies on your device. Web beacons can be used to determine which ads should be displayed in your web browser. In this document, the term “local data storage” is used as a collective term for cookies, web beacons and other similar technology.

Why does the site use locally stored data on their website and Apps?

We use local data storage for a number of purposes, such as: allowing us to perform our services; bring you relevant, personalized content when you visit our websites; measure and analyze traffic on our websites; improve our services; and direct targeted advertising.

More details on these topics are provided below.

Who else uses the local data storage on the site?

We use local data storage ourselves, and we allow our providers to use it when they provide their services to us. These providers are subject to data processor agreements, and are not allowed to use the data for purposes other than providing the service we have requested. In addition to our own use, we also offer third parties the opportunity to use the data storage on your device when you visit our services. We have devised strict guidelines on how third parties can collect and use data regarding our visitors. The guidelines indicate that the data may only be used for clearly defined purposes.

Areas where local storage data is applied:

a) In order to deliver and adapt the services to your use.
Local data storage is required and necessary in order to allow you to use our services, such as information about your settings, which tells us how services should be presented in your web browser. We also use local data storage to tailor our services to your best use. For example, to store settings for your favourite sounds, to store information about the best video quality available for your web browser and Internet speed, or to allow the use of special functions, such as the option to store ads Classified or retain previous searches and saved listings.

b) To analyse and improve our services.
We use various measurement tools which provide us with statistics and analysis regarding our services. These tools allow us to recognize the web browser over time and find out if the user has visited the website previously and if so, how often. These tools offer us the possibility of obtaining an overview of how many unique users we have and how they use our services. In addition, we use the information we have collected and analysed to develop and improve our cooperative services and services at Schibsted Media Group; for example, finding out which services generate a lot of traffic or seeing if a service is working optimally.

c) Our advertising.
We use local data storage in connection with the advertising activities of the Site. This allows us to know if and how often the user has seen an ad or a certain type of ad, and how long ago they saw it. We also use local data storage to build target segments and groups for marketing purposes and to manage targeted ads.
The following link includes educational videos in video tutorial format which explain, step by step, how to configure the privacy options of the most common browsers, social networks and mobile operating systems https://www.agpd.es/portalwebAGPD/CanalDelCiudadano/protegetuprivacidad/index-ides-idphp.php. Additionally, we use local data storage on other websites in connection with Site advertising when the user has visited other websites on which we advertise, as well as local data storage established by other actors. This provides us with information on, for example, which website the user visited before visiting our sites and allows us to target our advertising based on this information. For example, we may display travel announcements if the user recently visited an airline’s website. The information we obtain through local data storage does not contain directly identifiable data. We receive information about what pages you visited, but not about who the user is.

d) Third party advertising
As on other commercial websites, in the Site services the user will also find advertisements supplied by other agents. Most agents use local data storage. Local data storage is used to find cookies or anonymous identifiers on your device to find out which ads should be displayed or which ads have been shown on your web browser. Local data storage is also used to measure the effect of ads by measuring how many users clicked on a specific ad and how many actually completed a purchase. We do not allow this data to be directly linked to the user, you. The Site has the ability to read third-party cookie data such as these. These companies may use local data storage to target specific advertisements on other websites based on your visit to the Site.
